Good food, great staff, and good prices. The new location is larger and I think more comfortable seating.

Greeted by a super firendly host at the door. Then directed by our super friendly waitress in the lounge. We seated ourselves outside which was a very nice patio. Margarita was good, not exceptional (although out waitress said "lemme kno if its not how you want it", i didnt bother cause it was ok) anyway we shared a plate of carnitas. They were good albeit average. I love a fresh healthy tasting salsa with natural sweet tomatoes, onion, peppers, cilantro, lime and salt and pepper and dont care much for those laden with spices like cumin and chili powder, which is what theirs tasted like. Atmosphere was great, wait staff was exceptional. We left a 25% tip based on service. Would return but try other places first.

A nice place to get "Americanized" Mexican food. If you want "real" Mexican food you will just have to go to Guadalajara or to the southwest of Mexico (not San Diego)! LOL I think what I appreciate most about Mi Casita is that they don't stuff everything full of nasty canned black beans as a cheap extender. (I never have seen a black bean in anything while visting Mexico and Central America during the last 40 years)

Instead of being right in town it is now six blocks or so up the main street of town (there's only one so you can't get lost) in the Best Western. What is nice about the new location is that they now have a full service bar ... so you can get a slug (or two) of 'to-kill-ya' with your enchilada dinner.

Note: this is NOT your normal over-priced frozen-fish tourist trap down on the water! It doesn't need to be. This is one of the few places where us locals go to eat 365 days a year.

SERVICE:
Always Excellent! There is no waiting around for service here. If anything: one might have to shoo the waitperson away for a nice quiet dinner. And of course Greg, the owner, is always 'lurking' around the dining room to make sure you have everything you need. ***** 5 STARS

FOOD:
Pretty standard "mexican" food, I've had worse (almost everywhere) and I've had better (Barra de Navidad). Everything is always fresh and well presented. I have NEVER had a bad quality meal at Mi Casita during any of my 50+ visits. *** 3 STARS

VALUE:
Serving sizes are huge (you won't go away hungry) and are moderately priced considering the "Island Pricing" structure that exists. So it is a good value for here. **** 4 STARS

ATMOSPHERE:
Nice, large dining room. Roomy full-service bar. Outdoor dining if desired. Very clean (often not the case in Mexican restaurants). **** 4 STARS

Overall: a good place to go for dinner and a relaxing evening without needing to whip out the Plantinum Card.
